I'll second Intel Burn Test (IBT). I've added it to my list of necessary stress test programs and appreciate the fact that in all likelihood any system stable for 10-20 passes through IBT will be more than stable for any normal use, at least in my mind. YMMV.

If you use IBT make sure u have a WELL ventilated case or a good cooler. I've seen it cook a core2 duo up to 80 degrees with the stock cooler @ stock speed.
